I am writing this from Missouri where I sit near the ICU with family members and close friends waiting for updates from a kind surgeon and a very competent, patient nurse. My mother, Velma Foster, was in a serious car accident Friday evening. Through the miracle of the seat belt and air bag she escaped with only serious injuries considering she had a head-on collision with a semi truck. Mom is badly bruised and has a broken right wrist. Luckily she is left handed. The worse of the injuries was to her left leg. At this time we sit waiting for word if the tissue damage is so great she may lose it. Right now the word is guardedly good. If she continues as hoped we will know tomorrow or Tuesday. Please pray for her and us, the family as we sit waiting, waiting, waiting.
